Default form elements and CSS

I'm about to start re-styling some forms to use CSS but, not for the first time, had to confront my own ignorance of something fairly fundamental. I've looked around a few tutorials but haven't really found the answer I'm looking for...

...soooo is it, or was it ever, the case that simple form elements - such as input text boxes and so on - can be enclosed within <p></p> tags? Indeed, should they be? Is it OK to use <br /> tags to throw them onto a new line?

I've seen examples where <br /> tags were used without <p></p> tags but it just didn't seem 'right' to me that <br /> tags could exist outside of a paragraph...

I'm braced for any and all flak...;-)
